Clark Coolidge, Robert Creeley and Steve Lacy panel, Poetry and jazz, July, 1991.
Second half of a panel on jazz featuring Clark Coolidge, Steve Lacy, Nathaniel Mackey and Robert Creeley. Coolidge, who worked as a jazz drummer at one time, begins by reading his piece "A note on bop." The panelists move on to a discussion of bop as a language, jazz as sound poetry, rhythm, the relationship of words and dance to music, and their own experiences with jazz. They also touch briefly on the work of Harry Partch. (Continued from 91P067)
